Broadband Network Systems partners to bring mVPN network to life

Broadband Network Systems (BNS) has announced with Cisco Systems, Millennium Information Technologies, TANDBERG Television, BitBand and Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) a demonstration of the world’s first successful mVPN network deployment for multicast video on VPN and video-on-demand.

In the weeklong trial, BNS provided turnkey IP video solutions for this world’s first mVPN network. On a Cisco platform with mMPLS core from SLT, using IP video servers from BitBand Technologies, MPEG encoders and IP streamers from TANDBERG Television and BNS P200 IP set-top boxes, the tests consisted of multicast live TV channels and on demand movies, successfully brought from the headend via mMPLS core and mVPN link.

The multicast and VOD streams were then transported to several edge locations in the network, including the client side, and the result was that all video streams were tested at 4Mb/s on DSL network.

The result of the collaboration was a reliable, secure, private and easily managed network that is — for the first time — capable of delivering multicast video on IP-VPN networks. This collaboration also demonstrated how mVPN can cater to Multi-ISP users.
